Benefit Class for Haiti and a giveaway

Join My Creative Classroom as we help the victims of Haiti's recent earthquake. Ten of the MCC faculty and myself have come together to offer this wonderful class. It is really a 'buffet' of ten different styles and techniques. Click here to sign up for the Benefit Class for Haiti. Class begins Tuesday, 4/27.

All proceeds from this class will go to a wonderful organization.....Haiti by Hand. Haiti By Hand is an artisan group of Haitian women begun by Rebecca Sower. Just days before the earthquakes of January 2010, Rebecca was in Haiti working with this group of women. This ETSY shop was established to showcase and sell the handcrafts of the Haitians, as well as a shop to sell items donated by artists and crafters who want to help this group of Haitians rebuild and establish themselves after the devastation of the earthquakes.

And how would you like to win a chance for a $50 gift certificate to the Haiti by Hand ETSY shop? Head on over to Sue Stokke's blog and enter the giveaway.

Easter recap

My poor's not quite as bad as my Etsy store which has nothing in it, but it's pretty neglected! Here's a photo of what our Easter was like at my sister's house.Yes that's DS #3 and my youngest niece playing Wii. All the men were watching and the women were in the kitchen gabbing. What else is new? Actually I did get on the Wii with Lizzy and played sword-fighting. I won a few times and it made her really mad! Being an only child she likes to win...I guess any child or adult wants to win.

My sisters husband is an amazing cook. He made lamb and grilled teriyaki salmon. I questioned it at first, but it was the most wonderful stuff! I'm gonna hafta get me some.

We did an egg hunt and my boys were good sports and hunted with Lizzy. She's so much younger than all the rest of the cousins, but they love her and went out in the heat to collect eggs. They had a good time.
